H. Kathleen Childress Designs
Description of Artwork:
The Synapse© collection of fine jewelry was inspired by the power, mystery, and beauty of the neuron. One-of-a-kind designs hand fabricated in sterling silver, 18kt gold, and gemstones celebrate the special chemistry that makes us unique, yet universally connect the gaps between us all.

Booth # 3

Description of Artwork:
Using self-portraiture as a visual base, Lia Cook’s current practice incorporates concepts of cloth, touch, and memory. With her use of a digital jacquard loom, pixels become thread as she weaves images and creates large works that blur distinctions between computer technology, weaving, painting. In her recent work, she explores the nature of the emotional response to woven faces in collaboration with neuroscientists and uses the laboratory experience both with process and tools to stimulate new work inspired by these investigations.
Booth # 4

Description of Artwork:
For 35 years, Audrius Plioplys has been both a professional artist and a neurologist-neuroscientist. His work is neo-conceptual: a metaphorical investigation of thinking and consciousness. With 35 individual exhibits and 89 group shows, his works are displayed in museums, universities and major art collections internationally. Plioplys has transformed the artist’s studio into a neurobiology research laboratory, merging neuroscience with art.

Joni Seidenstein
Description of Artwork:
Raised by elves and trained by dragons only in the art of asking of good question, Joni Seidenstein nonetheless embarked on a journey of art quilting two years ago. Neurons tickled her fancy and she set off to give them life in textile format. She weaves magic with needle and thread, making natural subjects from the microscopic to astronomic sparkle with life.

Megan McGlynn
Description of Artwork:
Focused on anatomy and concepts of neuroscience, Megan McGlynn’s artwork utilizes raw materials and traditional fabrication techniques to form parallels between manmade and biological structures. Inside the intricate worlds of her sculpture, there are hints at the complexity, functionality, and organizational principles of minds; these are the thematic reservoirs for the artist’s architectural explorations.
